T-Mobile myTouch HD Benchmarks Arrive

Expected over the next few weeks, the arrival of the myTouch HD is fast approaching.  That means we’re in that interesting runup period where handsets tend to trickle into the wild and get pictured and benchmarked.  Such is the case with one of AndroidSPIN’s sources who had the lucky privilege to test the phone and record some scores.  You can see from the pictures below that the myTouch HD did very well in the Linpack and Quadrant scores.  

Initial speculation had pegged the phone with a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, but one of our tipsters tells us that he found it to be different.  After digging through the leaked ROM from last week, he found the device to have an MSM7x30 CPU, and thus, it does not appear to be dual-core.  Other hardware looks to be solid with a 3.8″ WVGA display, 5-megapixel camera, front-facing camera, and support for WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and more.

    Wrong. Glacier has a 8×55.

      kmobs is right, its the 8×55 which isn’t dual core but in fact IS 1ghz unlike the 7×30 which is only 800 and in the G2/Merge/desire z.

    Well first off, I could’ve told you about 2 or so months ago that it wasn’t a dual-core processor. Seeing as a rep from HTC specifically told certain people at a confrence. The QSD8255 is the second-gen Snapdragon 1GHz processor and as far as I know that is what the myTouch HD/4G has.

      Yes it is the second gen Snapdragon. An HTC rep confirmed this to me at a training session just this past Monday. And just so everyone knows, the new HD7 does NOT run on the new HSPA+ network, it is strictly 3G

        you’re correct, I am STILL confused why Microsoft wouldn’t want to incorporate next generation graphics into their Brand new OS seeing as its going to be tightly integrated into XBOX LIVE, this is really Surprising and a bit of a let down seeing as their new T-Mobile Phones looks so Awesome. I just wish the hardware inside were awesome as well. As it stands the MyTouch 4G/HD completely blows the specs off the HD7. Oh well I am a die hard Android fan BUT I really love the look and feel of Windows Phone 7 as well, its just not quite “there” yet.
